Why Is the Catholic's Purgatory a Lie!
Indulgences are Silly and Useless!
Roman Catholic apologists argue that the Roman Catholic church worships only God, while in fact they worship Mary and the lesser deities in the Catholic Pantheon.
They try to tell us, at times irritably, that prayers offered to Mary and the Catholic saints are to seek their help and support before the Lord God. NO Catholic, I have been told, ever renders worship to Mary, much less a mere saint.
Any reasonable person must reject this denial. When a person kneels before an image of a saint, lights a candle as an offering and drops a few coins or bills in the handy offering box, then looks lovingly at the statue or image and prays fervently to the soul of the dead person represented by the image . . . THAT is worship . . . NOT to Almighty God, but to a FALSE god! And my friend that is strictly FORBIDDEN by the one and only TRUE God! Exodus 20:3-5 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; (KJV)
NOWHERE in Scripture are we told that Christ's substitutionary Sacrifice only served to atone for just a PART of the just punishment due every man for his sin. We are indeed made aware that there are sometimes temporal consequences for our sins (Hebrews 12), but there is NO mention of the supposed purifying flames of purgatory. This is just another Catholic invention (Mat.15:9), one concocted by the Popes to devise a market for the selling of indulgences during the Middle Ages.
When God chooses to chastise His unruly children, it will be in this ONE lifetime on Earth, for at death our spirit goes back to God who gave it (Ecc.12:7), . . . NOT to purgatory! The damnable heresy of purgatory, is nothing more than an advertising gimmick to promote the sale of indulgences. TRUE
Believers in Christ have absolutely NO fear whatsoever of Purgatory nor any need for foolish indulgences.
Please consider the following Passage carefully: 1 Thes. 5:9-10 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. (KJV)
